that a promise broken. where obama talked a big game about transparency, fulfilled a lot of transparency, don't get me wrong, but on something like that, the way washington works, those negotiations are not on c- span, they are in a room at the white house where deals are cut. it is sausage being made. that promise was not fulfilled, so that one earned a broken. host: what about his broader pledges on health care? guest: health care was an area where he had a fair amount of success. he kept 47% of the health-care promises. many of those were tucked inside the health care law, which of course passed in the first two years of his presidency when democrats controlled the house. so health care was an area where he had some of his biggest success. from caffeyhear from michigan on our democrats line. caller: good morning. i think the president has kept most of his promises. everyone he could possibly keep. i mean, the republicans have gone after him like nothing. but during the presidential election, you heard him say many times -- the republicans say -- "facts don't matter." they just do not care

of 2006, i think it was, president obama -- and 2008, by the way -- when he was a senator, he talked a lot about the debt ceiling. remember, president bush was in office at the time, so senator obama would probably be against some of the things he was talking about, particularly the debt ceiling. the senator called it irresponsible to increase the debt. listen to then-senator obama. >> the problem is that the way bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents. number 43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome so we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child. that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >>steve: there you've got the president, back then senator, back in the day saying that president of ours, he's running up the bills, and it would be unpatriotic what he's doing. and we cannot raise the debt limit. forward to his administration, and i think this is going to be the fourt
're talking about the role joe biden has played and will continue to play in the obama administration. in some ways it's an odd pairing. the vice president was running against barack obama. what do you think we're going to see in this next term? i don't want to get into gaming out of 2016. we're -- >> thank you. >> we can take it a deep breath but i think there's -- it's been notable to me from a political permanent that the first two big initiatives of this year of 2013, the president has had vice president joe biden help. it was the president presumably who directed joe biden to open up a line of negotiations with mitch mcconnell and that was widely reported. when the deal was struck, they was to the benefit in terms of representational capital o'and with the gun task force as well. what does that indicate to you? >> it indicates what we've been talking about. the vice president has 30 years of experience and he has a wide variety of experiences. both in foreign policy and on the crime bill, the '94 crime bill is something he shepherded and his extraordinary ability to deal with senate repub
morning. thank you very much for joining us. i'm carol costello. we start this hour talking about a major announcement from president obama and the vice president, joe biden. next hour they will unveil their plan to fight gun violence in america. and they'll be joined by several families of newtown shooting victims and children who wrote letters about gun violence. here's what we're experting. according to an official familiar with the situation the president will press for a ban on high capacity magazines and assault weapons, push for universal background checks and request funds be made available to treat mental illness and enhance school safety. dan lothian joins us now. the nra is on the attack before they have seen the plan. >> it's a controversial ad the nra has released. it's not only going after the president and suggesting he's an elitist, but also going after the first daughters. it is an ad that is clearly aimed at sort of defending their position, which is they believe as the president looks to have these two tracks, one put pressure on congress to pass some of this -- these r
towards the country's spending limit once again, folks. you know what that means. talking about time to raise the debt ceiling, right? president obama warned he will not enter into another game of brinkmanship as he referred to it over the debt sealing with republicans. >> the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is in fact a safe bet. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. martha: a lot of talk about the president's demeanor at that news conference yesterday. we'll get into that a little bit more coming up but for now does this really come down to an issue of raising the spending limit or defaulting on our credibility as the president has talked about. let's bring in stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on fox business network. so, stuart, you feel the way he is framing this is incorrect? >> ye
must be fixed. and we must remember when we talk about rights, children have a right to be safe. so i applaud president obama and vice president biden for proactively taking the necessary steps to address this critical issue. it's going to take all of us united, regardless of party affiliation or our differing views on constitutional rights, to stem this tide of violence. more importantly we must take a hard look at funding for mental health services and other services. we must look at sinking technology -- syncing technology to ensure proper and tighter access to firearms. we must place adequate controls on ammunition. bottom line, we must protect our schools, our communities, children and families must be safe. i respectfully ask my colleagues to make this issue of violence a priority and to support our nation's leadership as they work through resolving this challenge which should not be difficult. if we compromise and keep focusing on saving lives. madam chair, i pledge to support you and to support all my other colleagues with the congressional black caucus to make a difficult tas
